ECONOMISTS have warned that unless immigration is drastically reduced the UK faces the biggest boom since the 1980s.
Newcomers to the country are accused of failing to integrate to our culture of clockwatching, timewasting and leaving work at 2pm for a fictitious dentist’s appointment.
Dr Helen Archer said: “Diversity and multiculturalism are not bad in themselves, but the lack of respect for traditional British values – half-day closing, openly resentful service, tradesmen not turning up – threatens the livelihoods of ordinary, not-very-hard-working Britons.
“If we keep ignoring the warning signs, this country could very well find itself an economic powerhouse like Germany, where employees are simply not allowed to spend a full day at work on the phone trying to get Beyonce tickets.”
But historian Norman Steele said: “We’ve been hearing this sort of alarmism for years, from the Jews and the Irish to the Empire Windrush to the Pakistanis and now the Eastern Europeans.
“However, in time, each of these waves of immigrants has adapted to our way of life and, by the second generation, do fuck-all just like everyone else.”
